The outside work is really starting to pick up! This past week we got all of the wood for the back porch stained and put up. I know we are going to really love spending time out there during the summer.
Just for the sake of documentation, I felt like it was important to post this picture and let it be know that I did help stain! :-)
The other big project this past week has been getting all of the new doors put in! The old living room did not have a door that connected it to the porch, so we have been using a board to keep it locked up. You can see the board in the bottom of the picture above. I was so excited to see how much light it brought in when the door was installed, it makes a huge difference!

We also had the doors put in the master bedroom. I don't think I had ever posted this picture before, but this was the master bedroom when we bought. Nice curtains! The master window looked out to the backyard and we knew we wanted to replace it with French doors.
This is the picture Ben sent me at work this week. The master bedroom had a bit of a breeze!
Here is the after picture! It makes the bedroom feel so much larger! We will of course add steps down to the grass and have a path over to the back porch.
Probably my favorite new door is the front door. This is the best picture I can find of the before.
And after! The painter is scheduled to start next week and he will stain it a dark color. There is still a ton of work to be done on the outside, but I think the new door completely changes the whole look of the house.
As I mentioned earlier, the painter is scheduled to start next week, so that will be fun to share. Getting closer...
